10.4 Modifying Document Descriptions in a Search Results List

QuickFinder returns a description of each hit that is listed on the search results page. By default, the following information is returned for each result:

The first three fields are taken from the content of meta tags in HTML documents or from document summary fields in other document types such as Word or PDF files. If these tags or fields are not defined, QuickFinder tries to find the first heading and begin selecting words. If it can’t find a heading, it begins at the top of the document and selects the first 255 relevant display bytes as the description.
